Doughnut Strawberry Shortcake
I'm not going to say that Doughnut Strawberry Shortcake is a million times better than regular Strawberry Shortcake. But I am pretty confident in saying that it's at least a hundred times better.
It's a beautiful balancing act: the holey rounds of lightly crispy fried dough act as perfect bookends for the light-as-air whipped cream and juicy strawberry slices which act as filling. The doughnut slices absorb just enough of the whipped cream so that the flavors combine, making for bite after perfect creamy bite.
Note: You can use any type of non-filled doughnut you'd like for this recipe.
